David GilmourDavid Gilmour's guitar work on 1979's Comfortably Numb, a track currently being performed as part of Roger Waters' Wall tour (and at some point, with David himself guesting for this part of the show), has thrilled fans for more than 30 years, with the track justifiably seen as one of Pink Floyd's classics.

To add to this, the track has just been named as the song with "the greatest guitar tone of all time" by the UK's respected Guitarist Magazine.

David beat other legendary guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix (in second place with Voodoo Child), Hank Marvin, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Peter Green, George Harrison, Scotty Moore, BB King, and Jeff Beck.

The top five are as follows:

  1. David Gilmour - Comfortably Numb
  2. Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
  3. Eddie Van Halen - Sinner's Swing
  4. Brian May - Play The Game
  5. Stevie Ray Vaughan - Couldn't Stand The Weather
